Laura & Edward Cannon told you the simplest way in general.
However, if you rename you _imaging.dll to be _imaging.pyd, your
troubles may also be over.  Because Microsoft has been trying to
increase their security by changing the rules about when dlls can
be loaded (no doubt due to some exciting virii), Python has
switched to using .pyd for the name of python dlls.
